xxWe had to say goodbye to Dex yesterday. He had been ill for some time and in the end it was all too much for him.
He was part of our lives for 15 years, since he was a tiny kitten, and he brought us so much joy. We're heartbroken but he had a great life and is at peace now. Sleep well Roodly, you will always be in our hearts little man.
Rest In Peace xx
Dex 2005 - 2021

In early December my sister's Siamese, Luna, managed to spook herself. My sister was in the sitting room, which is directly below the spare bedroom in which Luna spends much of her time, when she heard a loud bang from overhead. She immediately ran upstairs to discover Luna cowering under the bed and unwilling to move. Nothing in the bedroom had been disturbed. At meal time, my sister took a plate of cat food and a bowl of water upstairs and eventually managed to coax Luna out from beneath the bed. Luna had no obvious injuries but she was moving very carefully so my sister took her to the vet the next day. The vet could find nothing wrong with her but suspected some muscle soreness. My sister concluded that Luna must have fallen off the bed, but she couldn't explain the loud bang. She said the noise was much louder than that of a domestic cat falling off a bed. No furniture in the bedroom had been overturned and the other cat was with my sister in the sitting room at the time of the incident, so a feline scuffle wasn't to blame.
My sister said Luna was unusually clingy in the days following the incident and avoided the spare bedroom for quite some time. When I visited them over Christmas I noted that Luna was very cautious about jumping up on any piece of furniture. That wasn't typical behaviour for her. Earlier today I spoke to my sister and she said Luna was now very much her usual imperious, Meezer self so there was obviously no lasting damage. The volume level of the fall remains a mystery nevertheless.
